THE PEARL STORY BOOK (PDF ebook)
A wonderful vintage collection of classic stories, poems and folk legends of Winter, Christmas and New Year’s Day – perfect for reading aloud during this month and next.
From the introduction: “Once upon a time,” in the winter season suggests happy, young faces grouped about a blazing fire. A heavy snowstorm promises plenty of sport for tomorrow, but at present the coziness indoors is very attractive, especially now that the evening story hour is at hand. And while the story-teller is slowly choosing his subjects he hears the children’s impatient whispers of “The Snow Man,” “Prince Winter,” “The Legend of Holly,” “The Animals’ Christmas Tree.”
Silence! The story-teller turns his eyes from the glowing fire to the faces of his eager audience. He is ready to begin.
Each season of the year opens a treasury of suggestion for stories. In the beauty and wonder of nature are excellent themes for tales which quicken children’s interest in the promise of joyous springtime, in the rich pageantry of ripening summer, in the blessings of generous autumn, and in the merry cheer of grim old winter.
A wonderful variety of poems and readings for story telling!
